The round 24 LED lights?

They work very well. I put two of them in my Otter Lodge and lights up the area nice.

Don't know about battery life, but I imagine they should go quite a while. Should be pretty easy to do the math and figure it out. They use 4 AA's

I think the claim is 80hrs. I would guess anywhere from 50-60hrs

I got one at F Farm last year and put rechargeable batteries in it. after a few minutes the bulbs started exploding. I exchanged it for another one and the same thing happened. I think as long as you don't use rechargeable batteries in it they're good. I got a 48 led light from Northern and it works fine on the rechargeable batteries.

I've got two of them, and like Dtro said, they work very well. They are nice because they are very lightweight, cheap and very portable.

Saw these lights at FF a couple weeks ago too. Ran about 10 bucks for one set of lights. I'm gonna pick up two of them soon.

I have the UFO light and the 12 volt LED Robe Light.

Hands down the rope light is better light. Zip tie to the pipe in your portable or mount in your preminant house for late night fishing or night light. I have and extra VEX battery that i use for the rope lights. This is better than buying AA batteries all the time. I tore my UFO ligtht apart to try and wire for a VEX battery but have not fiqured it out yet.

Good luck

These lights work well for the money. You can get alot of run time out of them and I love how portable they are. I did have one [PoorWordUsage] out on me right away, so I assume that was a defective one, but the other one I have has worked fine without an issue. I also picked up one of the 42 light units from Northern Tool a few weeks ago, and though I haven't used it on the ice yet, I have in the garage as a work light, and have been real happy with it.

I don't know where you're located, but by me, at the Oakdale store there on the end of an aisle in the fishing section. On sale for $7, i think.

I have had the LEDs explode on me when I was using regular batteries. I currently have 2 of them and when they break I am done with them. The other day one of the rings of lights were dimmer than the other, not built with quality or probly not designed for the cold. They give off good light I will give them that.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
